"great crowd shots in the first few tunes."

I've always enjoyed the enthusiastic fan who's wearing the iron-on shirt his mom made him for the show.

This video, and the one from Paris '70 (which is SOO much heavier than 75), are probably my favorite Sabbath videos. The '70 video starts out a little campy but gets going quickly. It's worth a watch just for the "Fairies Wear Boots" at the 51:00 mark. (And the "War Pigs" right before it.)

Thanks for the reminder,
Enjoy,

Hey Now TOOTMO:

Yeah the 1970 concert is primal Sabbath-(like don't let your virgin daughter in the same room with these freaks.)
I get off on the 75 concert for how T.V. tries to tame the mighty Sabbath but by the end of the show the teeny bopper crowd is head banging so hard the T.V. crew has to do single focus shots on who they perceive to be the 'hot chic' in the crowd.
And the 'ushers' are having to remind the folks not to pass the line on the floor.
But you can tell the 75 T.V. concert was meant to box Sabbath in. ie-No drug references during SNOWBLIND and of course the silly snow fall.(the band is like WTF)
That 1970 show is a real treasure. The lines that OZZY adds are very cool. Just -Hand of Doom- is like the Holy Grail.
I think Ozzy says 'Your mind begins to rot, because you trip a lot'
To me the key to Sabbath was those mellow flashes in the middle of absolute head banging mayhem.
The intro to BLACK SABBATH is so beautifully played.
And to my mind when Iommi catches a riff wow can they tear a hole in the sky!!!

Cool; I wonder if Slipknot! would have sounded like this if Jerry had stuck with the SG?
